    It may sound impossible, but sometimes even companies like Microsoft (or big people like my boss who accidentaly changed my system specs) have a sense of humour. :) Today's Spring false announcements advertised over at Xbox.com include the wood paneled Vintage Edition Xbox 360, a monstrous Xbox 360 wireless helmet, the Xbox 360 Recon Edition with 1TB energy-efficient HDD, and a board game that connects to Xbox Live witout internet connection. If you want to learn more on one of these unique Microsoft products please follow Microsoft's steps closely.
    Step 1: Check Tuesday's date
    Step 2: Slap yourself

    Pretty funny, but you know if they only listed that helmet and not the other stuff, people would have bought into it more.. And I'd bet that helmet would sell too..:rockout:

    You got the email I sent you right malware?

    Edit: also who doesnt want a helmet that has a Flex-plasma In-Sight Display?
    I mean comeon i dont know what that even means but I want to have it

    Edit2: I would even be willing to pay up to $300 for that hemet (as long as that 5.1 surround sound doesnt break your eardrums in which case I wouldnt be buying it at all lol/
